Journalist and podcaster Tani Levitt set out on a mission to report to The Forward website on which shop serves the best kosher pizza in New York City.
One of his stops was at Kingston Pizza on Kingston Avenue in Crown Heights, supervised by the CHK (Badatz Crown Heights). He went there on a Motzoei Shabbos and described the scene as “controlled chaos.”
“Chabad families, teenagers, and yeshiva bochers impatiently waited in line, muttering about being hungry while half a dozen portraits of the Lubavitcher Rebbe oversaw it all from the walls,” he wrote.
The cost per slice was $3.50 and he rated the pizza 3.5 on a 1-5 scale.
“If you’re at Kingston’s on a busy Saturday night, as I was, you will likely be nudged to vacate your booth by a group lingering just over your shoulder, hoping to snag a rare seat,” he wrote.
“But don’t rush — this puffy crust is unique in Brooklyn, and worth savoring as much as the rest of the slice.”
His top 5 picks in New York:
- Bravo Kosher Pizza in Midtown Manhattan and the Financial District
- Benny’s in Flatbush
- Mendelsohn’s in Boro Park
- Pizza Time in Flatbush
- Pizza Plus in the Bronx
